Waiting game for Atletico Madrid striker after France's World Cup win

The Former Real Madrid star now plays in La Liga with Villarreal and could make a summer move to any of the top European clubs after his superb World Cup exploits.

The Brazil icon, a champion in 1958, 1962 and 1970, seems to be anxious by Mbappe's progress, as he cheekily congratulated the Frenchman on Sunday.

It showed a photo of captain Luka Modrić who was awarded the Golden Ball for the best player at the tournament, holding a trophy, although with a sad face after the defeat. He has that connection with Paul Pogba too'. "France are champions. Russian Federation has organised the best World Cup". Welcome to the club, Kylian Mbappe, it's great to have some company!

According to USA Today, Mbappe, who scored four goals this year for France, chose to donate his earnings from the tournament to a charity that gives free sports instruction to hospitalised and disabled children in sports, Premiers de Cordee. "Just like 20 years ago there were also 19-year-old players like David Trezeguet and Thierry Henry".

"For a nation of four million people it's a miracle to come to the World Cup final", said Aleksander Ceferin, the head of European soccer's governing body UEFA.

Neymar dominated plenty of the World Cup build-up with his fight to overcome a foot injury, but it was his feigning of injury that saw him become the butt of many jokes.

2018 FIFA World Cup is done and dusted.

"At the moment, I really want to enjoy and have a good time with our families and the whole of the French people in France. As I said the Ballon d'Or [voting] is not in my hands".

He and Samuel Umtiti enhanced their reputation during the tournament, giving France defensive solidity and helping the side keep clean sheets against Uruguay and Belgium.

"We want to see this again, with the players jumping, shouting, everywhere, with all of France, all our fans, all our families, everyone". "Pavard, Lucas and Kyky (Mbappe) have added an extra dimension to this team".
